The 3DconnexionClient framework is a new build dependency on MacOS.
That missing header file is part of their driver, which you
(unfortunately) have to download this from their web site. I asked
last summer if we could put the header files in blender's svn, and
they said no. I'll press the issue so building won't be such a hassle.

For now, download from here:

I'm surprised you were able to turn this off in the build script and
have it work... that is incomplete and untested.
